Coldforged Diety created using this method:
Name - Carthos
Portfolio - Blood
Myth - The Dreamer's One True Son: When the Dreamer was chained by his Sons and Daughters, one of his Sons, Carthos, would not betray his father. It was by his hand that the Dreamer remains conscious and able to influence through the Dreamscape. Carthos, deceiving his siblings, claimed dominion over the lifeblood of all living things, a domain which made his brothers and sisters laugh and mock him, but he chose it nonetheless. Strengthened by his father, the Dreamer, he sometimes invokes the power of blood within a dreaming mortal, and like a puppetteer he controls him while his mind slumbers. The most famous myth telling of such events is one of the Murtlafall Celebration in the Ardamian Kingdom, when the followers of Aahr - The God of Time and Death - found their Grand Patriarch stabbed by his own hand, blood running from all bodily orifices.
Manifestation - As a shambling man, blood dripping from all orifices, arms reaching and his face contorted, screaming as for mercy
Rituals - The Evening Prayer, whispered in hushed tones, blessing Carthos and requesting protection from his cruel touch
Divine Rewards and Punishments - Carthos has no followers, but he sometimes punishes the followers of the other Gods (except the Dreamer's followers), when they lack protective talismans, and have done something to displease their own deity. Their lack of divine favor makes them easy marks for when they enter the Dreamscape.
